Wind Energy

UCC Wind Energy Welcome

Welcome to the UCC Wind Energy research group homepage. We are a team of academics, professional researchers, PhD and master students working on technologies to help exploit one of the most economical and technically mature renewable sources of electricity: wind.

Our research focuses on the following themes:

  • wind power forecasting systems development and applications;
  • the wind resource in coastal and offshore areas under fluctuating atmospheric stability conditions;
  • wind energy storage technologies as integrator for wind power within the electrical grid, with particular emphasis on large scale energy storage such as pumped hydro energy storage;
  • multi-agent distributed control of renewables in microgrids;
  • advanced control of wind energy conversion systems.
  • offshore wind, wave and tidal energy resource analysis including ZephIR 175 LiDAR vertical wind speed profiling.
